If you choose, you can have trained mentors, and other staff members encourage and support you as you set and reach for your goals. You will also make lasting friendships and connections that will help you carry on through your journey.
Mom As Gatekeeper
This workshop helps break down barriers between mothers and fathers by addressing what is known as Maternal Gatekeeping – when a mothers beliefs about a father, as well as her behaviors, hinder a father’s involvement – and facilitate helpful discussions and efforts towards co-parenting.
Understanding Dad™ is a unique program that helps mothers improve the relationships they have with fathers, for the benefit of their children. This program helps mothers better understand the importance of involving dad in their children’s lives, and how to better communicate with the father(s) of their child(ren).
We offer various leadership development workshops where participants create a growth plan to reach their peak potential. Our goal is to prepare and inspire individuals to become role models in their families and leaders who take an active role in alleviating and reducing poverty in their community.
If you’ve spent part of your life – or most of your life – struggling to get by in the world, the idea of actually getting ahead might seem out of reach. But even if your story has been filled with barriers, vanishing opportunities, and setbacks, the next chapter can change all that. Yes, you have to write it, but you don’t have to do it alone.
